Season of giving – Christmas with HomeTeamNS was nothing short of wonderful, as two of our clubhouses rang in the festive season with charity events.

Spreading joy

In December 2018, more than 50 HomeTeamNS members gathered in the Living Space at HomeTeamNS Sembawang, bearing gifts for children from ARC Children’s Centre, along with their families. The daycare centre serves children diagnosed with life-threatening diseases like cancer.

Attendees enjoyed a hearty lunch buffet, as well as activities such as Santa-themed games and a lucky draw. “The two lively emcees, as well as the jolly Santa Claus, made our day,” said Han Lin Zhuo, who attended the event with her two young children. Following the event, the HomeTeamNS organising team visited the centre with the gifts collected through its Christmas with a Cause initiative. Beneficiaries received gifts, including daily necessities, while stationery was donated to the centre.

Their visit was greeted with laughter and joy, as the kids indulged in games and chocolate cookies. This was organised in collaboration with Trybe Limited, a non-profit organisation dedicated to enhancing the lives of young people.

Pay it forward

HomeTeamNS Bukit Batok set the stage for acts of kindness in December 2018, as seven charity organisations – Loving Heart, Make-A-Wish Singapore, Metta Welfare Foundation, Red Cross Singapore, Shan You, St John Singapore and The Salvation Army – participated in the Christmas Charity Fair. The event was attended by more than 960 people, who in the spirit of Christmas purchased merchandise for charity, made donations, and got acquainted with the various organisations.

Love can, indeed, triumph all.
